June 7, 2024 we gathered at Jimmy Johns Field for our annual ballgame.  It was a wonderful night to enjoy the ballgame.  I love being at ground level with the players, the game going on in front of us and just to the left was the pitchers warmup.  The field has such a friendly and relaxing atmosphere. under the umbrella canapoys.  The kids both small and big could run the bases after the game and then we had fireworks.   It was a wonderful  night and we hope to see you next year.     Keep an eye on our calendar for upcoiming educational and social events. www.detroitpcc.com
